National Institute of Standards and Technology Plan for Providing Public Access to the Results of Federally Funded Research
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) seeks comments on the NIST Plan for Providing Public Access to the Results of Federally Funded Research (NIST Public Access Plan). NIST is taking steps to make its scientific data and publications more readily available and accessible by the public, as directed in several recent White House memoranda. The NIST Public Access Plan applies to the results of research funded wholly or in part by NIST, presented in peer-reviewed scholarly publications and as research data. This document outlines NIST's plan for implementing new responsibilities and procedures to manage the public access of scientific data and publications. The NIST Public Access Plan was reviewed by the Office of Science and Technology Policy and the Office of Management and Budget; they approved it on December 4, 2014. Comments received on the NIST Public Access Plan will inform NIST as it revises its directives that implement the Plan.
